Opel Blitz ?

03-21-2007, 03:31 PM
We got all this allied stuff being thrown about and they are awesome, so i was wondering, could we have and axis counterpart?

If anyone would like to take up the request could you give it a winter skin, i've only recently got into mapping but am looking to make a map with the battle of the buldge in mind.

Thanks in advace :D

Surgeon already started one, perhaps he decided to use it for another mod. Don't know of anyone else yet starting one, but yes I agree it would be nice

How you found that Wile, I'll never know. I tried and failed...searching is such a pain now. >:

Mayyyyybeee I could do it when I am finished with my Stude, but I am also on a mod team that is going to have a rush of work here soon. So we will have to see, it all depends on how fast I get this thing done. May have to pass it off to someone else to texture...

*looks at wile*

hmmm...I wonder who I should ask when the time comes...hehe

The Opel I made is finished, but it needs skinning. I posted the model on Mapcore incase anybody wanted to try, and Albatros also said he gave the files to someone but I haven't heard back yet. I'll try myself once I've got more time but the most complex thing I've ever skinned so far is the cablecars in Edelweiss which took me weeks.

here's some renders and the files (plus references) incase anyone else wants to try skinning it:

That's a brilliant model, i know some guys who are usually pretty decent with skinning, can i see if they would take it up?

I'm giving this one a shot and if there are satisfactory results, I'll hand the texture over to Surgeon. That render is after about one hours work, with the texture resolution of 2048*2048. C&C appreciated.

Look's great atm :)

"after one hour"

wow, unbelievable !

we need also an "Kettenrad" ;)

There's still a way to go, but I'm getting there. I'm in the process of adding dirt and mud to appropriate places and it's quite tricky to get look right but I'm indeed getting there.

Awesome work, I'm loving the texture on there, what do you plan on doing with the glass?

Looks amazing!

Yeah, I asked someone to make a skin, a real life friend of mine, but somehow I haven't heard anything of him for almost six weeks now, which puzzles me a bit. Anyway, the model is great! I'll definately put it to use in most of my maps :).

Great job

I have one about 1/3 modeled but got extremely frustrated with it. I might start it from scratch again.

Just wondering how progress on this has come?

04-26-2007, 12:45 PM
Same here - I really could use that Blitz!!!

05-16-2007, 05:58 PM

I haven't worked on this one for a bit, but I got enough spare time tonight to get it pretty much done.

05-20-2007, 01:10 PM

Now that the wheels are done, I'll try and see how it looks ingame and make adjustments based on that.

I know u only make the skin textures, but can u say what the polycount is and have it lod?

Uhh, nice to hear that someone is working on this !

Nice to see it's near completion.

06-03-2007, 11:37 AM
It looks really nice Thujalvi, are you going to make severals skins for this truck ?

06-07-2007, 06:33 AM
I don't really have time to try and fight my way to get this into the game, so if someone with more experience in the field wants to do that I'll gladly hand over the truck.

06-07-2007, 11:23 AM
I can compile everything to run ingame. Unless you've already done more than one skin, I can also try making a few variations if you've got the photoshop/original file still.
